My Little Cuppycake

Sorry for the late post, frtiends! Everything here has been CRAY-CRAY!! I hit the back to school rush! And, I'm not even done with the school shopping! I'm too afraid to shop this weekend... it's the "tax-free" weekend sale and everyone, and their grandmother, are gonna be in the stores trying to save their $0.08 on the dollar. Still contimplating... Leave that head ache alone or risk it and take advantage of all the sales & save on tax??... hmmm, it's still up for debate.

Well, anyhoo... here's another lonely project of the week. I call this " My  Little Cuppycake".

I used Design on Cloud 9's Latte Bears for the bears and Cupcake Fairies for the cupcakes. I also used DC9's new Ribbon Borders set along the top and bottom of the center border as a trim.


I only used one of the bears from the latte bears file set to make all the bears. I just switch the direction of which way the different limbs were facing to change the look of the bear.

I absolutely love love love the new Ribbon Borders. Especially the scalloped one... it adds a really feminine touch to just about everything.

I embossed all the bottoms with Cuttlebug's Distressed Stripes embossing folder.

 Then I chalked over the raised image to make it more pronounced.

 I put a flower on each of the bears ears to make them a little more "girly". Just in case you missed their eyelashes & bright pink cheeks.

Here's a good example of how you could change the look of your bears just by moving the arms and legs into different positions. I also put two flowers on her because I had an odd number of bears on this layout and wanted her to be a little different.

 Not one of the bears is in the same position. 

Each page has two photo mats.

Well, that's my easy-peasy project for the week.

Thanks for looking!
Happy Crafting!

Alice In Wonderland - Tea Time

Gonna make this quick.This mommy's gotta run & I know this is super late. But here is my latest in Wonderland layouts and this time it's a double. All files are from Designs on Cloud 9.

I used the following files to make this spread: Wonderland Cuties ( Alice, Mad Hatter, & Cheshire Cat) , Time for Tea ( Tea Pot,Cups, Saucers, Spoon, & Lemon Slices), Pipsqueak (Ratter), Suri's Sweet Treats ( Cookies), Background- Diamonds (Center Diamond Strip), Betsy's Borders ( Scalloped Borders), Laurie's Labels ( Background Shape), Boy Bunny(March Hare), & Magic Show (March Hare's Top Hat).

Tea Drops are from the shape library of y ecal software.

Sugar cubes are the rounded square that also came from the ecal shape library.

Here's closer looks at the drops of tea & sugar cubes.

Boy Bunny makes an super cute Mad Hatter topped him off with the top hat from the Magic Show set.

 Used a mouse from the Pipsqueak file to make this adorable peeker.

I used multiple Sizzix ebossing on the tea cups and tea pot for this look.

Well, friends...I gotta run! Craft with you later!! Check back soon!
